Universal’s Dark Universe majorly failed to kick off, but they’re still trying to remake some of their iconic monster properties. Seeing as The Invisible Man, at least, looks like it’s going to be more of an actual horror film, maybe they’ll succeed this time, and I must admit that Leigh Whannell‘s movie now properly has my interest.
“Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass, escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister, their childhood friend and his teenage daughter. But when Cecilia’s abusive ex commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see”.
Said Whannell, who also scripted this version, to ‘Entertainment Weekly’ who have also recently released these three new pics:
“I wanted to kind of make something that was really modern, really grounded, or as grounded as you can be when you’re dealing with a film called The Invisible Man. Just something that was really tense and scary in a way The Invisible Man hasn’t been before.”
Elisabeth Moss, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid and Harriet Dyer star.
February 28, 2020, is the cinema release date.
